Today I want to write about what I learned from taking this course. To begin with, I think the course was very unique in several ways, at least to me, compared to other courses at KTH. For instance, I have never blogged before and certainly not as part of a course, so this was and is an entirely new experience. However, I was already a user of Twitter and I definitely encourage everyone to get more active on there, especially here in Sweden! It’s an easy way to be part of a community!
So, what did I learn? I will write about three aspects which I think cover the course material.
- Presentation skills: We had a total of four presentations (Elevator Pitch, Simulation 1 & 2 and Venture Project) and as I was heading home yesterday, after the last two presentations, I reflected upon how different they were and the course really highlighted that presentation is all about context. To improve your presentation skills, you need practice, practice and even more practice…so I’ll take the experiences from all four presentations with me!
- Simulation: Although I don’t think that the simulation is very accurate in describing reality, I definitely appreciated the insight in tech companies and the overall overview of all departements; marketing, manufacturing, finance etc. And as Serdar mentioned yesterday, it’s always nice to have heard the words and seen the work done, even if it’s within a game.
- Venture Project: So obviously, we are still working on our Venture Project. Since we continued with my idea, I really enjoy to see the development from really just an idea I thought of on my way home to the whole concept of business model, market strategies, target group and so on. And I definitely encourage you to share your idea with others and really reflect upon their criticism. I had a good chat with Marcus Nilsson where I admitted the need to change certain aspects of the business model. So thank you Marcus! 🙂
And finally, thank you, Serdar, and the class for another happy experience at KTH! See you!
